IPS webinar available on demand for LCRIG Members

LCRIG members can exclusively access an on-demand webinar which provides details of the Innovation Procurement System (IPS) and informs suppliers on how to join it.

Launched at the Innovation Festival last month, the IPS has been developed by LCRIG in partnership with Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and with the support of the Department for Transport. The IPS was established with the aim of increasing the pace of change and to remove the hurdles in accessing innovation in the sector by creating a dynamic route for LCRIG Members to access the market and engage with innovators nationally.

As part of a recent webinar, the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) invited supply chain organisations to put their questions directly to Martin Duffy, Jason Sprague and Kerry Winstanley, who developed the LCRIG IPS.

The webinar, which took place on 8th August, saw the following topic areas discussed:

  • What are the LCRIG IPS scope and categories?
  • What is the IPS category roadmap and which categories should launch next?
  • How to join the IPS for the Road Surface Innovation Category?
  • How to engage Councils to use the IPS as a cost-effective and timely route to market?

IPS Guide

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) has published a step by step guide to support members in accessing the Innovation Procurement System (IPS).

The user friendly guide has been developed as an aid to support supply chain organisations in joining the CCS operated SPARK DPS for the first category, Road Surface Solutions.

LCRIG believes the IPS will ease the route to market for suppliers, speed up procurement, and deliver best value, innovative solutions to the taxpayer to maintain our critical highway infrastructure.

LCRIG Members can access the step by step guide in the Members Area of the LCRIG website here.
